A Closer Look
Student Workshop on Jewish Life and New Beginnings in the Displaced Persons’ Camps
This workshop teaches students aged 14 to 18 how to critically interpret photographs as historical sources. It uses images of the displaced persons’ camps as examples.
Around 250,000 European Jews who had been liberated from the concentration camps and forced labor details were accommodated in the displaced persons’ camps between 1945 and 1949. Although very few wanted to remain in Europe, a diverse cultural and social life emerged in the camps.
The students are given a historical introduction to the topic in the permanent exhibition and then analyze photos of the displaced persons’ camps in small groups.
